2017 Jewish Educator AwardsLos Angeles, CA, September 2017
Four exemplary Los Angeles Jewish day school educators got the jump on a sweet New Year when they were surprised before their entire school communities with the prestigious Jewish Educator Award (JEA)—and a $15,000 unrestricted financial prize. Those honored include:
- Yehudis Blauner, General Studies principal, Cheder Menachem
- Adrienne Coffield, Director of Academic Technology, Brawerman Elementary School
- Melody Mansfield, English/creative writing teacher, Milken Community Schools
- Jenny Zacuto, Language Arts teacher, Yavneh Academy
Caught off-guard by Milken Family Foundation Executive Vice President Richard Sandler and BJE: Builders of Jewish Education Executive Director Dr. Gil Graff during four unique whole-school assemblies, recipients responded with emotion as students and colleagues cheered their appreciation.
